The CEOs of 20 big box retail store chains that have been affected by ‘smash and grab’ and organized looting are now asking Congress to pass legislation that would discourage criminals from reselling stolen merchandise online by cracking down on online sellers. Citizen journalist Tim Pool pointed out that some of these companies, Home Depot, Target, and Nordstrom, donated to Black Lives Matter and are now suffering from the ‘defund the police’ policy that encourages mass theft. The CEOs, instead of requesting a return to law and order, an increase in police presence, and prosecutions, are now asking Congress to implement restrictions on independent third-parties that re-sell items on the internet, thus eliminating competition from the large chain stores.

In a letter to Congressional leadership on Thursday, the CEOs of 20 leading retailers across the U.S. expressed urgent concern over the growing impact of organized retail crime.

The signatories, which included the heads of Nordstrom, Target, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Foot Locker, implored lawmakers to pass the “INFORM Consumers Act,” legislation that will modernize consumer protection laws to safeguard families and communities from the sale of illicit products.

“While we constantly invest in people, policies, and innovative technology to deter theft, criminals are capitalizing on the anonymity of the Internet and the failure of certain marketplaces to verify their sellers. This trend has made retail businesses a target for increasing theft, hurt legitimate businesses who are forced to compete against unscrupulous sellers, and has greatly increased consumer exposure to unsafe and dangerous counterfeit products,” said the letter, sent by the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA).

“In the current environment, criminal networks and unscrupulous businesses have exploited a system that protects their anonymity to sell unsafe, stolen, or counterfeit products with little legal recourse,” the letter continued. “This lack of transparency on particular third-party marketplaces has allowed criminal activity to fester.”

The executives called on Congress to modernize consumer safety laws to help curb retail crime and counterfeit activity.

What’s wrong, they couldn’t squeeze billions more from the pandemic insurance scam. Catastrophe insurance with its now after the IMF and WHO got together and made their scheme for the pandemic insurance in which the businesses made billions if not trillions from the people. once the who decreed there was a pandemic trillions of dollars went to the filthy rich from the people and even Harvard College which is nothing more than a hedge fund made billions, the corruption and world wide looting is beyond belief and no one talks about it… I GIVE UP.

How to grow government into a mean monster: Keep creating problems, then promote more government control as the solution. That is the Marxist march to hell on earth.

These CEO’s should be shot for crimes against humanity. First they fund a marxist organization to get rid of cops and then once that happens they get looted by the same dungholes they funded. That is poetic justice. But to continue the policy and then demand the competition get removed is a crime against humanity and freedom.
